    A different week same story.

    No threat to go down field and a steady dose of runs and screens that don't work. Nice job Haley. I hate to say it but bring back Bruce.

    This is pathetic. We my as well of traded Ben and start Gradkowski if our offense is going to throw no longer than 10 yards downfield, that being our homerun ball, and run screens that we haven't been able to run in 15 years. How Gilbert is the starting RT protecting a 2 time Superbowl winning QB is beyond me. Should be Starks and Adams at RT.

    mark it down, Beachum will be starting at RT before the break.

    Gradkowski WILL be our starter if Ben gets hurt throwing slow developing passes just to make an impression in a meaningless game.
    Remember the purpose here. You are just warming up your guaranteed starters.

    What does Ben throwing deep to Brown achieve?

    Conversely, either Dwyer or Batch will not make this team. THEY are being evaluated with the first team. Still working out the bugs with the zone blocking. Combine that fact with a desire to keep Ben clean and the play calling makes perfect sense. Lots of runs and screens to RBs.

    Agreed. The dumbest move we made was letting Max go. But we might think about that fact before calling for more deep passing in a meaningless preseason game.

    Amazingly 30 other starting QB's throw downfield in these meaningless games, practicing their real offenses to hone their skills, without fearing injury. We, however are too fearful of our crap line to try to run our real offense out of fear our starting QB won't make it to opening game.

    You mean guys like Brady who relies on timing more than ANYONE and has a WHOLE new set of receivers but has an outstanding oline?
    Different needs.

    Are we alone?
    Eli against us threw all of five passes, completed TWO one was deep. They did not put him at great risk.
    Keep in mind that one or more of Ben's sacks or dump-offs might have had a deep route too.

    Brady is in a different league as Ben. I'm sorry but he is. Brady has lost A LOT and he's still tearing teams up.

    Landry Jones passes 5 times on an 8 yard drive including a 45 yard strike to Wheaton. Why?
    Does that mean ANYTHING as far as how we plan to call plays?
    Does Tomlin trust LJ more than Ben who he "handcuffed"?

    Or does the evaluation focus change when you have LJ and Wheaton getting precious game reps and Moye fighting for a job.

    It might be preseason, but William Gay is in mid-season form as he got juked out of his jock by Hankerson for an EASY touchdown. Preseason or not, there have been three turnovers, a slew of penalties and the Steelers look like absolute s**t. Tomlin needs to go. This is embarrassing.
